Tech Dropouts Going Back To School

from the still? dept

These articles keep appearing. It seems to be quite a definite (if obvious) trend that folks who ditched school to jump headlong into that whole dot com thing are now looking for ways to finish up their degrees. At the same time, people in school are looking to stay there, and others who never went to school at all are looking for ways to ride out the tech bust - so now seems like a particularly difficult time to become a student, even if you're just trying to go back to school. Of course, that also means that the student population will be a bit more vibrant and experienced in the past - and can have additional insights to offer (if you consider how to throw away millions of venture capital dollars "insight").
